Entrepreneurship
This product targets potential and existing Small and Medium sized Entrepreneurs (SMEs). It touches on basic accounting skills, minimal book keeping skills, basic information on Kenya’s government license and tax regulations to ensure compliance (as ignorance is not a defense), simple profit and loss generation. Participants may be engaged in budget planning, cashflow projections, stock taking principles on an intermediate level. The expansion or summarization of topics is dependent on factors such as time and terms of contract with our client.

Personal Finance Planning (PFP)
How often do individuals plan their spending, saving and investments?

It affects the employed and unemployed. For instance, 60% of the world’s working population encounters PFP problems during their lifetime.

Poor or sheer lack of PFP has been proven to cause salary dissatisfaction (regardless of income bracket), create disputes between spouses and in some instances has been linked to theft and fraudulent transactions in workplaces. These behavioral characteristics cause low morale and high staff turnover – unfavorable situations for an employer’s performance maximization efforts.

T&H has developed ten basic principles that equip seminar participants with tools that aid in changing spending habits, adjusting lifestyles, improving savings cycles and assisting with relevant investment options.

Sign language for the deaf

Sign language is a form of communication used by non-deaf, partially deaf or completely deaf individuals to communicate. It involves the use of hands, palms and fingers to spell the alpabet, numbers, alphanumeric numbers or gesture part sentences in form of symbols to pass the message.

The deaf are one of the most marginalized groups of persons in any community worldwide. We at T&H have previously engaged in projects to train hearing persons to learn this language.This aides them in learning to communicate with either their deaf employment colleagues (where an employer has provided equal employment opportunities -such as Oserian flowers ltd in Naivasha, Kenya) or as parents, siblings or extended family of a deaf family member. It is a simple language to learn and only requires commitment.

We have been approached by organizations who wish to have their staff members train on sign language for general knowledge purposes. You can too.
